May 2016 be your best year ever!
Today, in the spirit of Resolution, I’d like to throw my hat into the ring and reveal that this year’s resolution here in The Yankee Saver land is going to be a big one…I mean… “Huge”!
This year's resolution is designed to tackle one of the biggest budget -busters of them all! This expense gets all of us, sometimes multiple times a day! Are you ready? Here it is:
This year at The Yankee Saver we resolve to stop paying other people for what we can make or do ourselves.
YIKES! I know, its a biggie! We are looking at some serious DIY action in the coming months! This means we pay ourselves for things we normally pay someone else for, like take out dinners, salon services, home repairs, drive-thru coffee, cleaning services, dog grooming, painting, and who knows what else ! Now I am not talking shabby substitute work here, I am talking "Wow, this is amazing, I am so psyched that I did this myself" quality DIY. A daunting task I know, but we're enthusiastic and excited for the challenge, right? OK, so maybe some of us are so tired right now that its seriously ridiculous, but here's the thing to remember: We can't always control the amount of money we make, but we can control the amount of money we spend paying people to do stuff for us. So, at the very least, this resolution is guaranteed to save us buckets of money! Even if its just take-out coffee a few times a week we still save about $520 in 2016. Think about how much could that grow if we add more! Its CRAZY good, all in cash, tax free!
So here we go! Who's with me?
I will, quite literally, keep you posted!
